I love how firms brand IT Audit as Consulting/Advisory. The work is more mind numbing than audit and has less exit ops. Deloitte by a landslide

Sorry, I misread the first time. I completely agree with your second post

I will say the ability to move solutions at Protiviti is attractive. They're very open to that and the promos seem pretty on schedule when the time comes.

Protiviti I’ve worked at two of the Big 4 and Pro’s culture is way better. We were card here I do not have the traditional busy season, it’s unlikely that you will work a weekend at Protiviti. You may have to do a few hours work on the weekend but it will be when it is convenient for you not being required to show up at a location every Saturday in the winter. We are small enough to still be able to care about our people

As someone who has worked in both Protiviti Consulting and Deloitte audit, I would go big 4 audit by a landslide. Your experience at Protiviti will likely be SOX testing and implementation, which is an experience you’ll also get in Big 4 audit. Additionally, you get better technical exposure and training at a Big 4. The trainings at Protiviti were a joke. Exit opportunities are also better at a big 4. Something to note, some people don’t really get a WLB at Protiviti (particularly the high performers as managers/directors ask them to do more work). Lastly, I actually liked the culture at Deloitte better. I’ve enjoyed working with Big 4 people much better - the caliber of the people there is much higher. At the end of the day, you’re probably not going to love either job, so you might as well take the job where you are going to learn the most and gain the most reputable skills that allow you a better exit opportunity.

I’d go with the consultant position, that is as long as it is not audit/IT audit. If so, then I’d go with the big 4 audit

Big4 audit. You can always switch out of big4 audit to something else but not other way around

Do you use social media to promote yourself or your firm? I have a LinkedIn account I mostly use to share my firm’s post and was considering setting up a Twitter account to share and comment new tax development (my area of practice). Do you think it is worth it at an associate level? If so, do you have any tip?
